We like to go outside the square and this wasn’t about pushing ourselves it was about doing something that was a little bit unique but still within our ability . Breath taking ! Staff on this adventure were outstanding. The safety and professionalism was 10/10 . A great experience .

A highlight of our trip to Paihia. The crew were very accomodating changing the date of our booking to the next day due to windy conditions, and coming in earlier than usual so we could all go up - my husband, daughter (8) and I. $40 for some epic photos on their go-pro - a photo is taken every 5 seconds. We got some great shots. Highly recommend! (even if you're afraid of heights - it's such a relaxing experience!)

I have seen the Bay of Islands from the land and the sea, but this was a brilliant opportunity to see it from the air. My friend and I did a tandem parasail with this company and had the best time ever! We loved the skipper's sense of humour, especially as we were brought back on board after being dunked (by choice) . We did bring a change of clothes in anticipation of this.. We felt our parasail was excellent value for money, and we got to see Paihia, Russell and Waitangi in it's full glory and had a good 15 or so minutes in the air. To ensure we had a good day for this excursion, we checked the weather forecast in advance, a small hint here for anyone else thinking of making a booking. We also paid an extra $40 to have our experience recorded. We had a go-pro attached to the parachute, and were given a memory card with approx 160 photos and a video of the time we were in the air.. Brilliant!!!... Another tip, there is audio!! It was hilarious to see and hear our reactions 😜😂😂

A fun activity to do - took three teenagers and a 9 year so covers all ages ! All would definitely do again!! Booking online is super easy and friendly staff both on land office and in boat . ( the boat takes a few people out at a time so a group can go together) Responsible price for photo package too .
